A Guide to Excessive Accessories



It's been a minute since I've written a heartfelt piece. This may not be eloquent, but here's what's on my mind right now. The truth is, I'm exhausted. I've been feeling a bit  overwhelmed and  spread thin.

It always baffles me when I see an impeccably stylish woman with a poorly dressed guy.  Doesn't she know it would make her look so much better if she took a little time to polish up her diamond in the rough? I know not all men care about the quality or tailoring of their clothing, but it makes a huge difference in the overall appearance of a couple. There are few things sexier than a well-dressed duo, ready to take on the world.  

I remember my search for the perfect diaper bag, just over four years ago when my older daughter was born.  I ended up with two.  One chic and one practical.  It seemed like there were a million options, but not many that were fashionable, functional, and suitable for my NYC life.

The holiday season is always filled with way too many delicious indulgences, and then, the rude month of January comes and smacks us upside the head.  Guilt sets in. 

Let's discuss my favorite accessory for winter--the statement boot.  This knee-high nod to the 60’s and 70’s gets a playful makeover in a boatload (ahem, boot-load) of designs.

Icy Reception

Last night, when I was doing an Instagram Live, someone made a less than favorable remark to me. I'm a human being, so even though I knew intellectually the comment was ludicrous, it still hurt. As I was whining about it to my busy husband, I decided instead of letting the negativity snowball, it would be a better use of energy to bring that conversation here. 

If I'm being perfectly honest, my ideal New Year's Eve would consist of a large pizza and a bottle of red wine on the couch. But inevitably FOMO always sets in and I end up making plans and going out. So in an effort to get myself in a New Year's state of mind, I'm sharing my key ingredients for a successful night.

Like so many people, I am always working to improve myself.  I get overwhelmed easily and I am extremely hard on myself. I am constantly plagued by guilt that I’m not doing enough with my own goals or being enough to those around me.   I’ve had some curveballs thrown my way this past year and I have learned a lot about the dangers of expectations—of people and of life.  

Eye-catching hosiery has become a go-to for me for this holiday season, giving a whole new meaning to the term "stocking stuffer."  The perfect marriage of fashion-meets-function, textured tights add interest to an ensemble while providing warmth to your goosebumped gams. 

My goal with this blog has always been to use it as a platform to inspire others.  It is crucial to me to be authentic and transparent for my readers so you trust me.  I love writing about my styling process, my fashion influences, and how I cope (and sometimes fail to cope) with my busy life as a working mama in NYC. But, I’m realistic.  I know many people land on this site and simply want to be able to click and buy what they see in the photos.  I totally get that and so I want to tell you about a new platform that is changing the game for influencer generated content.
